This is a "must-have" for anyone interested in PNW native plants. (As is Pojar & McKinnon's book, which is more like an encyclopedia with colored photos). The author knows his stuff -- the only frustration is that he sometimes sings the praises of plants that are extremely difficult to find in the nursery trade (except maybe at his wife's own nursery.)
I'm sure this book has a lot of good, useful information about North West Native Plants, however I didn't delve into it to see. I had hoped for a user friendly book with color photos next to every species, making it easy to picture them in my garden. This book has some black & white photos and some drawings but not even of every plant species. My search continues.
Great photos. Interesting historical information on the role of plants in horticulture worldwide. Helpful information on basics of how to grow plants from seed.
